Subject: Listen to this Loser now
The rest of the show is pretty great too! Nice representation of the spring 1990 phenomenon.

Security was *totally* unprepared for the night, and that was a relatively good thing. It might as well have been "general admission" as folks were pretty much crammed on the floor or sitting where ever they wanted to...
It was odd - the lights were still on when the band took the stage, and LTGTR was like a sound check in public.
THEN came what we'd been waiting for all of that wonderful Spring '90 show. H/S/F ! If memory serves, the lights were STILL on during this time, and people were finding their seats. Yes, the Slipknot is too short, but what there is of it is some of the most intricate playing I ever saw the "Late era Dead" perform. There's an great YouTube video of this that's easy to find, and it focuses mostly on Phil. You can see what a difficult song Slipknot was to play when done right.
Add to that the best "Loser" EVER, and a great 2nd set, and I feel honored just to have been there. (Although, by the time Stella came around the smoke was SO thick it was hard to breathe.. ( don't think they had any sort of A/C running)
All in all, a magic show in the middle of a magic tour.
(AND, BTW... This recording is indeed, "the goods" Get it while you can ! It's the stuff of great trips...)
Subject: I can't believe this is an audience tape.
Subject: very distant show
but dig how you hear the full range of the crowd from front to back... sounds like your sitting on the lawn far back....
LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL
